Dinner for Eight

Contact: Brian Collins Ph: 9523 5533 Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Mission: To build parish life through broadening friendships and acquaintances within the parish. Dinner for Eight is a group that facilitates social get-togethers in the parish. It is purely a social grouping, sharing, preparing and eating of a meal for eight people. It is not a prayer group or a social lecture group.
A group of eight people (couples and/or singles) meet for dinner on a regular basis (about every 5 - 6 weeks). A couple or individual within each group will be asked to act as Initial Host and Coordinator of future meals for that group. The dinners should rotate within all the homes of group members. At the end of six months the group will divide into two and one half will then team up with half of another group to make up a new eight for the next six months. At the end of the 12 months, each couple or person will have been involved with two sets of groups and hopefully will have doubled the number of friendships/acquaintances within the parish family.

 

Rosary Making Guild

Contact: Carol Stuart 9523 8410
Mission: To make rosary beads for the missions and propagate Rosary devotion.
A group of people interested in making Rosary beads meet in the chapel each Wednesday 12.30pm. After a short prayer together they make Rosary beads and share their skill in in doing so. The Rosary beads they make are distributed free of charge within the parish as well as to many missions.

First Fridays of the month the Guild also prays the Rosary together. They're happy to introduce the way to pray the rosary to any new comer. They are always ready to welcome new members. It can also be a occupational therapy for those who are looking for one.
